Odds & Sodds Times Four!

Good Evening Chicks!

I have four cards in the post tonight.  I've been working on putting them together for the past couple of days..rearranging this and rearranging that when I had a few minutes here and there.  I'm happy with the outcome although not jumping up and down haha!

This first card was done using the Penny Black stamp from the Slapstick collection.  I've been wanting this one for a very long time and accidentally found it.. up here in Campbell River!
The ducks are coloured with copics; The candy hearts are from a Fiskars set I found a long time ago on a bargain table for $1.  The background heart was cut with the Cricut and behind that is a paper doily from Wiltons.  I found a place up here where I can buy 1,000 paper doilies for $14 so may pick up some and give them away in the future!

The recipe is...
Stamps:  Penny Black & Fiskars
Paper: Recollections and Staples 110 lb. white
Ribbon:  Wally World
CuttleBug Swiss Dots
Wilton Doily

 This next card is sort of a Valentine's Day card.  You can tell by the sentiment on the inside.  I used a stamp from Penny Black (Love her stuff!!) and then distressed around the edges at first and then in the middle to give it more oomph!  The background was done with the CuttleBug and then distressed with Honey.  The sentiment is one I picked from Inkadinkado after winning at The Outlawz!
The recipe is....
Stamps:  Penny Black & Inkadinkado
Paper:  Staples 110 lb white, Recollections
Cuttle Bug - Cant remember the folder name
Distress inks:  Festive Berries. Wild Honey, Versafine
Jellyroll Stardust Pen - Red 

This is one of my faves from this group.  I watched a video done by Jill Foster at the Penny Black bog and  did th version by memory a few days after watching it.   Mine is nowhere near the quality of Jill Fosters but I like the bright colours.  I had to use a different stamp from Stampendous called Agapanthus cluster and stamped the image five times using a different colour each time.

The recipe is...
Stamps:  Stampendous, Studio G
Inks:  Distress Wild Honey, Preserves, Shabby Shutters, Festive Berries, Broken China
Paper:  Staples, Recollections

The fourth and final card is really quite kewl IRL.  I cut the heart out of the front cardstock with the Cricut.  Red glimmer paper was taped to the back of the opening.  It was too bare so I added two heart layers done with the Cricut as well. 

The recipe is...
Stamp:  Inkadinkado
Paper:  Staples, Recollections
Stampendous heart stickers

Well, there you have it.  A glimpse of what I have been up to the past few days.  Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

I love how different each of these cards is. I like them all for different reasons, but I think my favourite is the second one.
